UK Cabinet Office at risk of further data breaches, review concludes

A government department admonished for publishing honours list details in error is at “significant risk” of making further and bigger personal data breaches, a review has found.

Adrian Joseph, conducting a review of the department’s handling of personal data, found such breaches are “too easily assigned to human error” where a “greater consistency of process, controls and culture” could have “reduced the risk systemically”.

He added in his executive summary: “There is a significant risk that further and more impactful breaches will occur as the amount of personal data being handled by the department increases.”
